Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so I'm told...so why not start your day with a nutritious and really yummy baked good?  The important part to note is that it is nutritious, not just some buttery, sugary, pastry that will fill you up for the moment.  These muffins are the perfect combination of sweetness (only 1tbsp of honey added), fiber, and spice (from the cinnamon). 

Comforting as a breakfast 'pastry' should be but a much better for you choice than anything you could purchase at the store.  AND they are really easy to make to! So, what are you waiting for? Plan these for your breakfast tomorrow!


Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins
1/3 c butter, softened
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 c mashed bananas
1/4 c creamy peanut butter (no added sugar)
1 1/2 c whole wheat white flour
1/2 c oatmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 c plus 2 tbsp hot water

Preheat oven to 325.  Line a muffin pan with paper liners. Combine flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, salt in a bowl.  Whisk and set aside.  In another bowl, combine butter and honey.  Beat to mix.  Add eggs and beat until combined.  Mix in bananas, vanilla, and peanut butter.  Do not over mix.  Gradually add in the flour and oatmeal mixture and mix to combine.  Dilute the baking soda in the hot water and beat into the batter.  Pour into the muffin pan and bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool before storing.  Enjoy!

I made these today - the recipe made 12 large muffins and 12 mini ones... there are 6 people in my house, and they didn't last long! My intention was to keep them for breakfast tomorrow morning - had to make a second batch! (oh, I added chocolate chips...) Thanks for the instructions!

These came out delicious! I used Agave rather than honey since our pediatrician recommended not giving our young daughter honey yet (risk of botulism...)
